Finding Gloria: En El Valle
Are you from South Texas? Never heard of the chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet, writer, and cultural theorist who was a farm worker during the summers and went to Edinburg schools until your teens? Do you feel Gloria Anzaldua was writing for you the first time you read her? Were you angry it took you all this time to finally learn who she was, that she lived in Edinburg, went to Pan Am, was from the border, that maybe it took a college class to learn her name or a pen pal or a mention in someone else’s zine or book? Do you wonder what her students thought of her when she was a student teacher at PSJA, maybe she taught your parents? I want all these stories of discovery and wonderment, these stories of betrayal at not knowing her words for so long, stories of nourishment and alimento.
